If liberal politicians really wanted to reduce gun violence, they would enforce existing law in the cities suffering the most … and the complicit left leaning media would be holding their feet to the fire.

They approved (5-0) to permit four of their janitors to carry handguns […]

New York obviously does not embrace the Second Amendment

| December 16, 2011

I never realized just how restrictive New York firearm laws were until reading this story. It never occurred to me that transporting a pistol in a locked case could be a class C felony, even in a liberal state like New York?
